Rihanna’s Box Braid Charms Have Me Running to the Beauty Supply Store — See Photo
As a fellow Bajan, Rihanna is basically my cousin in my head. So while I may be a little bummed to be dealing with the frigid cold in New York City, I’m always happy to live vicariously through her while she’s on our glorious island of Barbados. This month, the “Work” singer has been soaking up the Caribbean sun with her beau A$AP Rocky and while rocking the cutest vacation hairstyle I’ve perhaps ever seen: box braids full of multicolored charms.
Rihanna is the queen of experimentation thanks to her style and beauty choices, so we’ve seen her with many different haircuts, colors, and hair accessories. However, this may be the first time we’re seeing the “Pon de Replay” singer with braids studded with a rainbow assortment of beads. Each waist-length braid had multiple jelly-like beads in various colors and shapes woven in, spaced out along the plait. For example, one of her braids in the front had several transparent heart-shaped charms.
Based on the radiant glow of her skin, I can confidently say my style icon is living her best life at the moment. In true Rihanna fashion, she has not disappointed with her looks on this trip, either. With A$AP Rocky by her side, she also showed off a lace-trimmed red and pink lingerie set — perhaps from her very own brand, Savage x Fenty — to the Imagine music festival. She paired the vibrant garments with a hot pink shoulder bag that only complemented the charms on her box braids.
